Fini Friday!

I'm pleased to show you two pairs of earrings today that have been languishing on the sidelines for a few years now. The first was merely waiting for the design to coalesce. The second required technical expertise and confidence that I did not yet have when they started growing.

Bunnies Moonlight Dance
Ingredients: Turquoise bunnies, moonstone, Bali & sterling silver.

I saw these fabulously vibrant fans of vintage lucite at a bead store some years ago and knew I had to have them to play with! They are beautiful and when I saw the earring finding cast of sterling silver, I knew I'd found their match! Unfortunately, the side-drilled holes of the lucite beads posed a problem in terms of hanging so that the fans dangled the proper direction once the earrings were hung in the ear. I played around until I devised a novel way to hang them, however, by the time I'd discovered my particular technique, I was out of both confidence and patience and became very discouraged. And thus, they sat. Here they are, finished and boldy elegant at last!

Don't forget to stop by and see me and these new creations at the Abundant Heart (And Chocolate!) Mini-Symposium this Saturday in Minneapolis, MN, USA!
I'm so excited that I'll be giving a presentation as well!!!
